Dedicate a Tree or Grove

For generations, people have made lasting tributes, celebrated milestones, and honored time spent in beloved redwoods, by dedicating a tree or grove in honor, memory, or celebration of loved ones. These dedications have, in turn, supported our work, and we thank you. Sempervirens Fund has been honored to steward these dedications and tributes across the Santa Cruz Mountains, including at Big Basin.   

Tributes will likely have been impacted by the fires. We will be able to make detailed assessments once it is safe for staff to enter the park. For the moment our focus is on supporting the efforts of emergency responders to protect lives, property, and put out the fires. When we can, we will be in touch with you about these special places. We appreciate your patience. Until then, please know that we are thinking of you.  

Although we are unable to dedicate redwoods right nowyou can honor someone by making a gift in their name. By making a gift today you will support the increased need for restoring the redwood forest.  

We look forward to meeting you under the redwoods in the future.
